Hello guys, this morning I changed the file contents in /Root/System/Csc/Others.xml and added the ability to enable CallRecording in Rom Stock Android 5.0.

Need to have a Stock Rom with Root, a File Manager go to System / CSC and rename the file in Others.xml Others.xml.old, then copy the file attached here and change permissions in RW-RR, restart. On restart you will magically enabled CallRecording.

It works perfectly!

I am not responsible for any changes that you will make in your device.

See you soon ..... Appearance some developer to update Xposed framework compatible with Lollipop .... Thanks

MOD - Enabling Call Recording on Samsung Galaxy S4 I9500

I tried the same thing with my Samsung Galaxy S4 I9500 on Stock ROM 5.0.1 with firmware [I9500XXUHOA7_I9500SERHOA7_SER]

I used the following method
1. Browsed to root/System/CSC and copied the others.xml file to my PC
2. Modified the file with <CscFeature_VoiceCall_ConfigRecording>RecordingAllowed</CscFeature_VoiceCall_ConfigRecording>
3. Saved the file and copied it back to the root/System/CSC folder using ES Root Explorer.
4. Restarted and voila...

Hope it works for you all. I have attached the file for your reference. Extract the file using WinRAR.

NOTE:
1. You must take a backup of Others.xml if any thing goes wrong.
2. I am not responsible for any changes that you will make in your device.

thank you. Without root would be very nice. :)

Yes indeed. However, in order to access the file(others.xml) ROOT access is required. So the phone must be ROOTed.

In order to gain something(CALL RECORDING) we have to sacrifice phone warranty. But dont worry. If you get into warranty issues then prior to claiming your warranty, you can used ODIN to restore to stock firmware.

Or you could use a non tripping knox root method, like I do ;)

Gr8. But would be nice if you share as to how and using what you implemented the non-tripping method.
If you can share the steps, then I would gladly include your steps and modify the others.xml accordingly.
I don't know if you understanded me, I meant a ROOT method without tripping Knox, I don't know a way of applying this mod without root... But anyway, to root without tripping knox:

Well for KitKat the easiest method is to downgrade to an old 4.4.2 firmware and root with towelroot which doesn't trips knox, then if you want to stay in KK, you can flash a newer version of it through Mobile Odin Pro, using the "keep root" option, which also won't trip knox...
And if you want to install stock lollipop rooted without tripping knox you have to flash @_alexndr Lollipop DevBase from a rooted KitKat rom with Mobile Odin Pro too...
Obviously you can't flash any custom recoveries on it because this will definitely trip knox.
I'll leave links regarding this procedures...

Hello guys just a tip ... If for some reason the above mod is not working (like me) then you should do the above procedure but use the feature.xml file and it will definitely work!!!
